IBM Bluemix Dedicated for GitHub Enterprise (Dedicated GitHub) is the IBM Cloud-hosted and fully managed version of GitHub Enterprise, available for Dedicated Bluemix environments. GitHub provides the social coding experience that developers love. Bluemix Dedicated provides a next-generation, cloud computing environment on physically isolated hardware, integrated into your network. It’s a perfect match.
How it works
The current implementation of Dedicated GitHub follows the standard best practices for setup, as described by GitHub. In addition to the regular GitHub Enterprise server, Dedicated GitHub includes a warm standby, a backup server, a client access server (CAS) for single sign-on, and other servers for consumption-based monitoring.
To ensure that you run smoothly, IBM implements monitoring, including basic ping, CPU, and storage monitors.
IBM also provides more sophisticated consumption-based monitors that are tailored to specific GitHub operations. For example, the site might be up, but for some reason, you can’t clone a repository. If you’re editing GitHub Issues, this problem might seem minor, but if you’re working on the code, it’s critical. IBM continuously verifies that Dedicated GitHub is working for you.
Try it today
Get the GitHub development experience without the hassle of running and maintaining your own GitHub site. Use a single sign-on Dedicated GitHub for your business that is fast, secure, monitored, highly available, and backed up regularly to guard against disaster. You and your users are supported so that you can concentrate on developing your applications rather than maintaining your tools.
If you are a service owner or first responder, you ask yourself "What’s going on with my IBM Cloud application?", "Are my customers satisfied with the service they’re getting?", "Has performance changed recently?" and so on. The answer begins with your organization's plan to design, deliver, operate, and control the IT and cloud services that it offers. This first post of the series begins with monitoring your cloud-based applications.
You can now interact with your own GitHub Enterprise and GitLab instances from Bluemix public!
Both the GitHub and GitLab tiles feature a new server dropdown menu, giving you the freedom to work with code on GitHub, GitLab, or in your own company’s GitHub Enterprise or GitLab instances.
The benefits of a microservices architecture come with a price. The service management solution must deal with the architecture’s inherent dynamics, dependencies, and complexities to ensure that the application is available and performing. Ignoring these considerations could result in the microservice-based applications might behave worse than a monolithic application that was built in the traditional fashion. The principles of managing microservices explained in this post will help you avoid these pitfalls.
